Certificate in trauma counselling for mental health professionals: Level 1
This six-day trauma certificate program will provide the most current information on the biopsychosocial phenomenon of trauma. Learn how to assess and respond ethically and appropriately to adult clients. Examine the effects of and the responses to working with traumatized individuals. Develop trauma-informed approaches to work that enhance personal and professional resilience.
The trauma issues experienced by adult clients/consumers may include early childhood trauma, violent crime, sexual assault, domestic violence, work related trauma, motor vehicle accidents, medical trauma and on-going pervasive developmental arrests.
The objective with clients who have experienced a single incident trauma is to recover to base-line functioning. For this we use psychoeducation and symptom management strategies. With clients who have experienced complex developmental trauma, the objective is to mitigate layers of human suffering. This suffering has manifested in entrenched rigid maladaptive patterns. The objective is to bring clarity to the origin, presence, and manifestations of these patterns. To develop a systematic process for changing the core belief system/schema that drives these patterns.
